Cantinho das Gaveas - I recommend the Octopus ‘à Lagareiro’. It melts in your mouth. And the garlic with olive oil. Delicious! While waiting for your octopus, taste the white small cheese in the starter plate. A pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper. Light and delicious. Don’t forget your ‘bica’ to finish!

Maria Severa, who lived in Lisbon in early 19th century was the first Fadista in Portugal to be acclaimed as a Fado performer. She is sometimes accredited with not just the popularity but also the origin of Fado music. She was a prostitute that sang fado and also played the Portugese Guitar. Severa has been uplifted to mythical proportions, and there are plays, musicals written about her life; including the first sound movie in Portugal in 1931. Severa died when she was only 26.

This will be my last post about Lisbon. I hope you enjoyed the other two (downtown and Fado) and I hope that now you all want to go there. When you do, here are my favourite 9 places to stay that I found on 9flats. The other day I found an amazing video from Matthew Brown about Portugal, filmed mainly in Lisbon. This could be my memory of the town, but it could also be yours.
